@berniedolan Yup, and I was on a downhill at 35mph, slowed to 15 then skidded to within inches as he made a blinkerless right turn

@eyelock Excellent! Thanks David!

So the ColdFusion Admin API doesn't have a method to set a JNDI datasource (such as those created in jrun-resources.xml then added to admin)

Sat Sep 12 1:05 AM
The Emperors New Clothes comes to mind when everyone else around me seemed blinded to the obvious that Flex isn't RAD like CF, but should be
Sat Sep 12 1:01 AM
Adobe's just gonna luv me for that quote ;) RT @commadelimited: Beginning Flex: Why u should learn Flex & AS3 -

@thecrumb Entirely possible that the image is a tight crop from a much larger photo, & could have been taken by an asst shooting only crowd

22 years ago Olan Mills trained me to do portraits. Then they sent me to work in the city photog'ing foul mouthed kids. I quit on Day 1

@iotashan I'll be a nice guy and just reply kindly. While biting my tongue.
Thu Sep 10 8:12 PM
Got a FB question: "What kind of camera do you recommend I buy to get nice photos like yours?"
Thu Sep 10 7:25 PM
@lolajl Maybe, but they are their own boss, and I haven't posted the embarring ones (yet).
Thu Sep 10 7:22 PM
Hrm. When someone untags themselves from a Facebook photo, I guess it means they really didn't like that photo.

@styggiti Yup,watched that the day he posted it :D Have not tried it yet. His blog says he was voted in top 20 wedding photogs in world
Thu Sep 10 4:48 PM
@styggiti Yeah, I hope to observe carefully to see what I can learn from him. I'd like to see the "Brenizer Method" panorama in action.

There, I've done it. I committed a talk to RIA Unleashed: LCDS Data Management for Mere Mortals: A Practical Approach
Fri Sep 04 4:45 PM
Cool, there's an app, um, product for that. Mount your iPhone on your bicycle!
Fri Sep 04 4:34 PM
iPhone should have an app that monitors the elevation of your bike route and warns you if your fat ass won't be able to make it up that hill

@DevLano Also, w/jrun enable verbose connector logging, then tail -f the apache error_log while getting page. Also check jrun/logs

Fri Sep 04 1:59 AM
I have Graphics Authority master suite, but haven't yet learned to use them. I see @TreyRatcliff's final texture pix have cool borders
Fri Sep 04 1:50 AM
yeah, what he said ->RT @lightroomblog: @stevenerat If the move tool is selected ;) (cycle thru photoshop blend modes with option/shift/+)
Fri Sep 04 1:36 AM
Hey @TreyRatcliff You can cycle through blend modes with option/shift/+ rather than hunt an peck
Fri Sep 04 1:35 AM
Photoshop blend modes explained in detail by @julieannekost (PDF)
Fri Sep 04 1:28 AM
@styggiti Yeah, I'm finding the end result to be too much texture, but there are some subtle techniques i like. ( & tons of textures incl)

The documentation & examples for LCDS Assembler method fillContains() is clear as mud. #coldfusion
Thu Sep 03 12:28 PM
@javierjulio This week I'm reading all the LCDS documentation for CF to build a preso for RIA Unleashed.
Thu Sep 03 12:27 PM
@javierjulio The mx:Image sourceChangeEffect thingy will be useful for future projects since I already completed my (unpublshd) photog site.
Thu Sep 03 12:23 PM
<cfargument name="fillArgs" type="array"> "fillArgs is a list of arguments to pass to the fill method." <-- yah, that's real helpful #lcds

Oh my god, my stalker just contacted me by one of my lesser known emails. First Flickr, Facebook, blog, then telephone, now that.

@marcesher Worse, I have a bank that makes me print PDF forms then send them by snail mail or walk them in.

I don't respond well to being stalked on Flickr, Facebook, my blog, and now by phone. Go away.

There's no way that could have been a pint of Cherry Garcia. Nope... They must be making the carton smaller and calling it a pint. Yup.

Tue Sep 01 5:40 PM
@joaofernandes Just an intro to getting started with LCDS DM and CF. AFAIK, not many people using it, and its a reasonably complex topic
Tue Sep 01 5:20 PM
Tue Sep 01 5:19 PM
@fuzzyorange I had some exp as CF8 QA testingLCDS DataManagement EventGateway. Seems like LCDS is still niche for most CFers
Tue Sep 01 5:06 PM
If LCDS can automatically integrate with Hibernate (bypassing need for an Assembler), can it directly integrate with ColdFusion 9 ORM? Hrm.
Tue Sep 01 4:57 PM
Lots of LCDS reading today. Need to present on LCDS DataManagement with ColdFusion at RIA Unleashed (Please god give LCDS an Admin!)
Tue Sep 01 4:53 PM
@fuzzyorange I was hungry for more testing :D
Tue Sep 01 4:39 PM
Little known fact: First summer job after high school was Quality Assurance...for meat packing co. Taste testing bacon, ham, lunchmt. True

@styggiti Each PW Flex TT5 is about $220. (PW+ = $175) FlexTT5's TTL let you worry less about flash exposre in tough situations (weddings)
Tue Sep 01 2:23 PM
Decided to not read more of Enterprise Flex from O'Reilly bc their BlazeDS modding / hacking distracts me from learning actual LCDS better.
Tue Sep 01 2:21 PM
@styggiti @robwilkerson However, I'm now very happy with PocketWizard FlexTT5 radio control of TTL flash, esp when using multiple flashes
Tue Sep 01 2:19 PM
@styggiti @robwilkerson Nikon's CLS flash system offers more control from the camera over remote flash & flash ratios than Canon
